Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The kids are alright, sorta.

Just got back from the Explosions in the Sky concert. Damn, I feel old. Overall a thumbs up. Some really nice peaked out jamming. Lots of fanning so to speak, with slow built ups of some really nice cohesive crescendo's. Four guitarist on stage. Post rock the kids are calling it. The closest Dead comparison's I would make, would me some of the end of song jams from the song-Music Never Stopped- from the the late seventies. '76 to '78 range I believe. Help me out with links if you know what I am talking about. Good to know there are still some good bands still rocking it out there. They finished at 10:45 and I was amazed. I kept asking folk if this was really the end of the show. I kept thinking it was the end of the first set, but no, it was over. Rock and Roll, and it was over at 10:45! What the fuck? The kids can jam, I will have to say "yea". But rock all night, no fucking way. Peace.

for the post-50 set, saw Thurston Moore tonight do Sonic Youth chamber music among the redwoods in the Big Sur sky. It was nirvana - even w/o the song for kurt

Blunts n' Beats, great title.

That was beautiful, deeply moving music. I liked part 2 & loved part 3 of the vid. Did they get the chainsaws out last night or all whale song? You gotta like the pics of Sinatra and Dylan behind them on the vid. Anyway, can last nights performance be accessed?

Damn, you are one lucky man BD. Have you met Thurston? I kinda get the feeling he actually may be close to his media image. I can't believe he is 53. And as a side note, how many punk-no wave-experimental band member marriages work out for 27 years (if I did my math correctly) w/ kids? Thurston is on my list of folks I would like to share a beverage with. Gordon Gano is another. But this is funny, I have no desire to meet any one in GD.

This was right down the road and I missed it. Is that a pic of Jerry on the bass drum?

a nice little article about the show by a guy that writes for local alt weekly:

Actually met him last night - just spoke for a handful of minutes because he mentioned that he had stopped at Mike Watt's place in San Pedro to pick up Stephen Perkins' drums for his drummer. I was asking him about Watt and if he had seen him with the Stooges. He had. Very nice guy. Very chill. Maybe 120 people, at most. Sonic Youth Chamber Music. Harp, violin, 2 acoustic guitars, and drums.

micah, to me it looks more like Willie Nelson

just like the old joke...

"I'm not sure who the other two are, but that's Willie Nelson in the middle."

He has a bourbon out, which is strange b/c he no longer drinks as he doesn't like the way he is when he does (I think that was from 60 minutes).
Equally unhealthy in large quantities (which I know nothing about) is his ice cream, Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler. It's a home run. If you like peaches.
